Thanks for your interest in The Learning Experience® located in Charlotte, NC. Our center is located at 3937 West Arrowood Road (Whitehall Corporate Center) conveniently located off I- 485, exit #3 and Sandy Porter Road (additional entrance). We offer daycare to children ages six weeks through Preschool with additional programs for children up to age 12 in a dynamic and fun environment that is committed to quality care.
Our unique programs are based upon years of research and early childhood education experience and that is why we pride ourselves on offering both excellent academic programming as well as a variety of enrichment programs all free of charge to our children. Our proprietary “Little Learners” educational program has been developed for our infants to one year olds. It employs theme-based activities and written daily communication for parents about each child’s day at the center. From there, children advance into the Toddlers program. Children who walk are ready and able to explore the toddler room, a specially designed space that encourages reinforcement of gross motor skills. Two year olds advance to the Twaddlers program and once they are fully potty trained they become Preppers. Sometime between two and three years old, these great adventurers make use of their newly found independence and become involved in hands-on activities that prepare them for preschool. Preppers learn the wonders of science, computers and social studies in addition to the fundamentals of pre-reading, pre-writing and math.
Once children are of preschool age, three and four year olds, they begin to use The Learning Experience curriculum. The Learning Experience Academic Program (L.E.A.P®) realizes that how children learn is as important as what they learn. L.E.A.P® encourages each child to achieve success acquiring invaluable cognitive and social skills while having fun. Our unparalleled Fun with Phonics® program is our early reading program that helps 90% of our preschoolers that completed the preschool program with us at TLE reading by the time they go to Kindergarten!
Every child participates in one or more of our enrichment programs provided by Charlie Choo Choo® that come directly to the children’s classrooms. Programs including Music 4 Me®, Dancing Feet®, Suddenly Science®, Marvelous Math®, Start to Art®, Movin’ & Grovin’® further develop each child’s imagination, socialization skills, mind and body. The programs rotate every twelve weeks and the program each class receives is determined upon age appropriateness. Most importantly, we believe what is good for one child is good for all our children and that is why we never charge our parents for enrichment programs.
We work closely with corporations in the Charlotte area to encourage participation in our Work and Family Program where employee discounts are available. Don’t hesitate to check to see if your employer is a Work and Family Partner!
We also pride ourselves in the cleanliness of our center.
